During the exercise, the BMC soldiers were places in various scenarios that included operating in underground and confined spaces, areas of limited visibility, breaching obstacles, close quarter drills and how to best use various Army organizations and assets as enablers for a mission set. The AWG conducted the exercise in order to prepare the soldiers for their upcoming participation in a subterranean assessment at the Network Integration Evaluation 14.1 scheduled for November. AWG's end state for conducting the Risk Reduction Exercise and its upcoming participation in NIE 14.1 is to develop technique solutions to capability gaps with respect to subterranean operations and to ultimately develop an Army Techniques Publication on subterranean warfare for the force.
